Windows 7: Download Timeouts

13 Jan 2011   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Download Timeouts

Hi -

From MS website :

By default, Internet Explorer has a KeepAliveTimeout value of one minute and an additional limiting factor (ServerInfoTimeout) of two minutes. Either setting can cause Internet Explorer to reset the socket.

Is it safe to change to a larger value. I occasionally, but not very often, experience timeouts (w/o any warnings, btw) while downloading. I understand that it may not be on my end but still ...

Anyways, I read up on this and the only steps I found to alter these values was to go into regedit. I prefer to avoid having anything to do with going in there and was wondering if there are alternate 'For Dummies' steps to do this. It would be great if there was a nifty 'Dummie-friendly' gui/tool that could do regedit changes.
